Plenary Sessions

Meet the Plenary Speakers

We are excited to be hosting a superstar roster of plenary speakers for Preventive Medicine 2022 — all leading experts in their fields with fascinating stories to tell.

COVID-19’s Impact on Clinical Preventive Services

During the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals have delayed seeking clinical preventive services due to fear of contracting the virus in health care settings. In addition, health care providers and institutions have postponed appointments in order to care for patients suffering from COVID-19 symptoms. This session will focus on trends in and impacts of declines in cancer screenings (e.g., mammograms, colonoscopies), cardiovascular screenings (e.g., blood pressure, cholesterol) and immunizations (e.g., influenza, routine pediatric vaccines).

  • Emmy Betz, MD, MPH, Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine, University of Colorado School of Medicine

Communications for Evidence-Based Impact

During the COVID-19 pandemic, clear and accurate communications for health care providers and the general public has been of paramount importance. Print, broadcast and social media channels have been filled with guidance from respected sources (e.g., CDC, NIH, WHO, FDA) related to COVID-19 prevention, screening and treatment, yet misinformation abounds. Panelists in this plenary will focus on success stories in communicating evidence-based messages related to vaccines, mask use, breakthrough infections and booster shots in order to promote public health as well as strategies to overcome rampant fabrications of the science.
